...that is ideal for those who want to be near to the centre of Bamburgh. Malcolm provides a warm welcome and a good breakfast and he is genuinely concerned that you enjoy your stay and have everything you need.

Breakfast was very good... More

I had a really brilliant 2 nights in Bamburgh. Hillcrest was a lovely little b&b and the breakfast was really superb. The room I had was massive and the en suite was really well decked out too! Malcolm was great for advice on where to go and what there is to be done. Thanks for having me!
